said in denver if the 47% controversy had come up in that first presidential debate. it didn't. it was not raised by president obama. it was not raised by the moderator jim lehrer and i think the romney campaign was surprised on that. mitt romney had an answer to go and that's the one you heard last night. as for what you're talking about on whether mitt romney is shifting his policies, the obama campaign thinks he is. listen to the president yesterday on the campaign trail. >> when i got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy and yet the fellow on the stage last night who looked like mitt romney said he did not know anything about that. >> you can hear a lot more from the obama campaign and the candidate himself on that. the romney campaign, carol, pushing back saying, no, when it comes to health care, taxes, this is the same mitt romney and he's being co
are continuing the coverage of the presidential debate in denver. one question is what role the government plays in our lives. we've seen that role increase dramatically over the past four years with the obama presidency. how much is legitimate? how much is considered not legitimate by the voting public? a lot of people think that people have been persuaded by the degree to which the government has got involved in people's lives. other people say the tea party rebellion stirred up resentment towards the role of the government. let's ask the former office depot ceo, and we are pleased to welcome you now. steve, good to see you, thanks for being here. >> good to be here, david. david: the republican message, what's he got to make clear about the limit of the role of the government in our lives? >> well, i think if you talk to most business people, they say there's three legitimate roles for government in business. the first is regulation. from a regulatory stand point, the role of the government is to level the playing field, establish the boundaries, make sure that consumers are not getting hurt,
the upper hand on president obama. >> the candidates traded views on the economy, domestic issues and jan crawford is at the site of last night's debate in denver. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norahad h and charlie and to our viewers in the west. this is the only presidential debate out here in the west. mitt romney last night owned it. if you have any doubt, look at this morning's denver post of the swing state here, colorado, saying he may have changed the dynamics of this race. >> under the president's policies, middle income americans have been buried. they're just being crushed. >> it was an energized mitt romney taking direct aim at the president's economic policies and offering a sharply different approach. >> we know that the path we're taking is not working. it's time for a new path. >> romney came into the night with polls showing most voters thought the president would win. he clearly exceeded expectations. cbs news poll of uncommitted voters shows by a 2-1 margin, romney had won. 56% said their opinion of romney changed for the better. yet 13% said that of the
is for sure. the debate this week in denver on wednesday is a big deal for the romney campaign. he has to make his case, and he has to mak his case he's a better candidate than barack obama. he has to throw some punches. he can't just kind of go in there sort of apologetically and be very gentle with obama. he has to really throw some punches and show people why he's the better candidate. i think a lot of these polls are a little bit overstated. i think the democrats have been oversampled in a lot of polls, and i don't think there's that huge of a gap between romney and obama. nonetheless, he has to make a really strong stand in the first debate. this is probably the most important debate for him at this point in the campaign. >> i don't want to let that statement about polls go unanswered. eugene robinson's piece today is about what he calls the new conspiracy. republicans diluted that there are skewed polls. paul ryan was the latest one to join on the bandwagon last night talking about wisconsin. >> i don't believe that particular poll. i won't get into the methodologies about it. >> they we
